I have always used disposable razors because I felt the ones where you replace the blades but keep the shaft were too expensive. After trying this Venus Embrace Razor from Gillette, I have changed my mind. The very first time I used it, out of the package, my legs were smooth. I realize that all razors perform well the first time out, but how many leave you without cuts? I have to be very careful when using disposable razors for the first few times because I always cut myself. This razor didn't cut me once! It has 5 blades which really work well, and a strip at the top of moisturizer as well. I used it slowly at first as I would any disposable but then decided to try it a bit faster and rougher, and still no cutting of my skin.
When I was done, I ran my hand down my bare skin and it felt smooth, no bumps or missed spots. It also felt silky and moisturized to the touch. I have reformed my thinking and from now on, I am buying replacement heads for my Venus Embrace Razor. I received this sample free from BzzAgent for review purposes, but this in no way influences this review. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
